I had a great time there. The tour guide Shaun was very knowledgeable and fun. Very authentic and filled with cultural references. When they told us it would take an hour and twenty minutes I thought Id be board halfway through but I was not. It was great to see where Bob created his music and how he lived. Would... More

One of the most expensive museums ever on this globe: we were two adults and two small kids and we had to pay more than 50 USD! You are told that the guided tour lasts approximately 1h20. What you are not told is that the last half hour is entirely dedicated to watching YouTube clips of Marley live performances -... More

Visited with the family, the tour lasted about 2 hours in total, we all enjoyed the tour. You get taken round with a guide who is a singer, he got us all singing as we went round Bob Marley's house which was great fun. The guide gave us a detailed biography of Bob's career and life and very much told... More

Must be the most authentic Maley experience in his home town, followed by a visit to Trench Town and the Institute to complete a thorough overdose

There aren't really many tourist attractions in Kingston itself, so the Bob Marley Museum is a must see. I'm not a massive fan, but he is such a key figure in Jamaica I wanted to go. You can't just wander the house yourself, it is a guided tour and that actually is the best bit! The tour guides really make... More

You aren't allowed to take pictures inside the house, but you were allowed on the grounds outside which had a lot to photograph. It was a small cute house with tons of items to carry on the memory of Bob Marley and his family. What really made the tour was our guide Shanese. She led the group in singing several... More

So, I'm pretty clueless about Bob Marley and it was great education for me. I did not know he was shot. I did not know any of his story. Very neat hearing about a celebrity and his life and rise to the top. If you like history, you may enjoy it. Or if you enjoy reggae and Bob Marley, then... More

The museum is jam packed with history and memorabilia of Bob Marley, his family and the Wailers. The tour is guided so it was possible to ask questions and the guide we had was very knowledgeable. In most places it's possible to take photos. There's a cinema where as part of the tour a film is shown. It was a... More

This was a nice day trip. We enjoyed the ride. We enjoyed the village. The museum was nice. The only thing we did not like was the people begging for money. Don't give any money. If you give money more people will come.
